With a dearth of quality striking options, Spurs are already believed to have made contact with Lukaku’s agent over a potential summer move. Emmanuel Adebayor has impressed since being recalled by Tim Sherwood but the club cannot rely on him to deliver in the long term.
Having endured a difficult spell in English football, the club are likely to cut their losses on Roberto Soldado after just a single season. With Harry Kane still largely unproven at this level, Spurs will be in need of a new first choice striker.
Lukaku fits the bill but it remains to be seen whether the lack of Champions League football at White Hart Lane will affect the Belgian’s decision over his future.
